Umm... 6 years of professional programming, 4 in Java, 2 in C++, just getting comfortable in Perl. Like cooking too.

Doin' it da Perl way.

[ #3131 ]
Well, I've dallied a few times with Perl (and perl-esque languages like PHP), so I knew a bit about the weirdness of syntax and the wide-spread evangelism. But I must say that getting this project at Interapy has made me a quick Perl afficinado.

I Like it.

I am slowly getting drawn into the elegance of the whole language and the object-oriented approach used with it.

Mind you, I'm not nearly close to being at a comfortable level yet, in fact, I have been out of practise for a few months, so my whole attention right now is bent on getting back in swing again with my programming in general.

Wish me luck!

  • Welcome to the world of Perl.

    If you haven't already picked up "Learning Perl" and "Programming Perl" (both in 3rd edition I think), pick them up now. Read "Learning Perl" cover to cover. Use "Programming Perl" (i.e. the Camel book) as a reference and/or read sections relevant to what you do.

    Other worthwhile books to consider after you've finished "Learning Perl":

    • Object Oriented Perl - Damian Conway. I highly recommend this one.
    • Network Programming with Perl - Lincoln Stein.
    • Effective Perl Programmi
